An unusual shot today with a Stereo Pair in its full and glorious double to give you twice the pleasure:-) These were remarkable images for the time and the technology available and it is good to show one now and again!
While we can strike-through the "
" in the catalogue entry itself, it is interesting that the International Hotel is mentioned as the main subject at all (given that it's hardly prominent - being in the distant background...) Anyway, we have confirmation from the community that this is Quinsborough Road
, close to the Carlisle Grounds
in Bray. The Location Identified klaxon is duly rung. (Now where's my fez....)
